I got out of work today and wanted to go on a quick dayhike, so I chose good ole’ trusty Red Buttes Wilderness, which lies just south of Applegate Lake and the Oregon state line. Last summer I did an overnight at Lilypad Lake in this area, so I was familiar with this stretch of the PCT and really anxious to hike it again.
Since this is a repeat, there’s not really much else to say except…pictures!
